You may have just started a new thread - "Extreme trailering!".

You earned the sun time, enjoy.

I haven't got to the flea market yet to find anything on your satellite question.

I plan on going to Mexico in the morning for new spec and will do the market this weekend.

Going to see War Horse this evening.

Well my trip to Yuma is over, I left on Thurs. morning and arrived home about 10.00 PM Sat. night. The trip was fairly uneventful except for some bad roads just north of Leeds Utah, saw a couple of vehicles that had spun off the road with one upside down and emergency services had just arrived and looks like someone may have been trapped. I was going to pull off the roads until they cleared but by the time I found a rest area I was out of it. I hit some major wind in Montana just south of the border and even some of the big rigs were pulling off so I decided to do the same and it gave me time to straighten out my rig, have some tea, washed my floors and dishes (not in the same water), spent a little over an hour parked until the wind died to a reasonable rate and arrived at the border with only two vehicles in front of me. I brought back well over my limit for booze which I had promised as gifts to people and felt sure that I would have to pay. Customs guy smiled and said "Have a good day" and I arrived home 3 hours later to a minnie snow storm.

The only thing I complained about was the cost of fuel. Diesel prices are all over the map and I can see a real problem coming up not only with tourism but the overall cost of commodities.

Glad you had a safe trip home. From what I am hearing from my neighbors in Montana, they are having an unusually dry and warm winter. Not good for the fishing this summer.

Glad to hear you are home safe. The weather in Az is just now getting nice. You left to early.

They are now getting the snow, but when I came through on Saturday the landscape was brown and I know the farmers on both sides of the border need the moisture.

They are pretty worried in Bozeman. The economy and culture depends a lot on snow for sport and to replenish the lakes, streams and water table for agriculture. Hopefully it will be a wet spring.

Too bad I am not going back through cowtown this spring or we could meet for coffee and I could regale your wife with stories of you and all those young senoritas.
